Extra free throws after so many team fouls in a half. At the NCAA level, 6 team fouls in a half results in the "one-and-one" where 1 free throw is guaranteed and you get a 2nd if you make the first one. Then when a team gets its 10th team foul it and any proceeding foul it commits automatically results in two free throws, hence why you see so many at the end of games.
God, how I hate the B1G. Seriously.
The TTUN players started it and they also knew that they could handle the ejection of a nobody kick coverage guy but we'd be hurt by the loss of Dontre and Hall. That tells me the coaches orchestrated it in some fashion. TTUN wants to stoop to that level fine. We'll just embarrass them on the field like they deserve to be embarrassed.
they could be hired to be Miley Cyrus's ass hair groomer.
I think you just described Brady Hoke's next job.
I guess the one thing that has amazed me so much about CJ is how quickly he picked up the nuances of being a good punter. A lot of punters can boom it 60 yards but the little things like nailing the ball inside the 10 or 20 on a regular basis or doing what he did vs. Indiana are just things that take time to learn effectively. He essentially started doing that within a month of the season starting last year and he's only gotten better.
Urban knows who he's going to have next year, who will opt for the draft, who will transfer and who they won't renew (4th-5th year redshirts). OSU is not going to take 30 in this class but 25-27 seems possible and I am perfectly fine with that.
Who's the Master?
Yep, that applies to Troy vs. TTUN.
Bet that was the best $25.30 you've ever spent :)
The OP needs to go into OSU's weight room and say these things where Mickey and the team can hear them. Bet that'll go over like a lead zeppelin.
I have no doubt Gardener is going to play well and TTUN's defense will give us problems. It will all depend on how well our defense plays (as opposed to last year) and how well JT plays in his first TTUN Game. Hoping his experience vs. VT, at PSU, at Sparty, and at Minny (and to a lesser extent Indiana) have prepared him mentally. I am sure the nerves will be in play early.
Why do I get the impression that Jim from Tuscaloosa's family tree doesn't have any branches? I wonder if that's the same guy who poisoned all those trees at Auburn.
Eh, I don't hate Herbie. I have always wondered if his bosses at ESPN have told him to not show any OSU favoritism of any kind, whereas Desmond Howard can say whatever the hell he wants. It could also be Herbie is simply trying to earn some credibility by not appearing to be biased. I know he's a Buckeye at heart. His boys always wear OSU jerseys when they appear on air with him. He's a Buckeye dad just the same as any Buckeye Nation dad.
I don't see Clark ever living down the "Ohio State is dope, bro" thing, even if he were to miraculously find his way to Columbus (which I highly doubt). Not sure the fanbase would fully embrace him, even if he comes out and plays like the next coming of Gronk (which I also highly doubt).
The run game got bogged down because of missed throws/dropped balls. IU dared JT to beat them through the air. I agree, I think TTUN will do everything in their power to stop the run and dare JT to beat them via the pass.
I get jazzed reading that I cannot imagine how sky high the players will be feeling coming out of that tunnel Saturday. Wow!
Everyone, let's remember one thing. The records are going to be thrown out the window for this. People are going to pick a blowout. I will be STUNNED if it's not close. We gotta be ready for war because I guarantee you they will. There's a reason Urbz picked that song.
And yeah, how I wish Mr. Miyagi would show up, clap his hands and suddenly heal Dontre because if anyone deserves to play in The Game this week it's him. Get well soon Tre!
The defense dictates who gets the ball when OSU is on offense. Its my guess that the reason he had so many touches in the Sparty game and very few since then is that MSU didn't think he would be as big a threat whereas Minny an Indiana covered him well. I don't think he "disappears" because he goes full throttle every play, but he has always had problems when he's been covered 1-on-1 off the line.
Urban knows what we don't. He knows exactly how many players he's going to have next season and how many available scholarships he'll have. I guarantee you we lose somebody early to the NFL draft that we're not expecting. I've heard rumblings of both Decker and Washington being a possibility. Then there's the normal attrition and the redshirts who don't get renewed. If we take more than 25 its because we have room and have the scholarships.
This year's team has a really good blend of experience and youth, scoring and defense and length (if Amir plays good defense). Trey has emerged as a viable option and by the end of the season we're going to see why Russell won't be here next year. I know this was Sacret Heart but you don't dominate teams like that unless you are really, really good.
^ Now you see why Urban has been bemoaning the lack of DL depth.
Same reason Joel Hale wasn't moved back to DL, it would cripple our OL depth. It's taken Warinner 11 games to get the OL to where it is now, messing with it would not be a good idea.
Man, with Bowen, Feder, Schmidt and Burrell our OL is going to be enormous for years to come. Welcome to Buckeye Nation, Branden!
Thought I had heard he had problems with his grades. That might explain why he didn't end up at Western _ichigan.
It's not the yards we're giving up on the ground it's the big plays that are concerning. If the OSU offense continues to score at its pace then no grinding rushing team can keep up with the Buckeyes EXCEPT when the OSU D gives up quick 90-yard TD runs. If we're going to allow Melvin Gordon to run for 200 yards we'd better keep his rushing average low, otherwise the Bucks are asking for trouble especially if the OSU offense gets bogged down like it has in stretches the last 2 weeks.
